Trump Administration Transition Resource Center

Donald Trump was elected on November 8, 2016 and inaugurated on January 20, 2017 as the 45th President of the United States. These events set in motion the ongoing transfer of power and transition of policy as the new administration works to implement its agenda and fulfill its campaign pledges. The election also ushered in a new Congress that will quickly seek to enact a new set of legislative priorities. PSC provides the information below as a resource on the executive actions, appointments, and related activities affecting how the federal government does business with contractors—and what PSC is doing to promote and protect the valuable role of the federal technology and services industry.
